Our team has created the first lab to offer the perfect formula for Newsroom 3.0 by combining the MDXP solutions.

Web-first work processes are a must in any newsroom. However, media teams are always implementing changes to improve efficiency, speed, awareness and conversions. These changes are partly explained by the technology updates that help professionals to optimise their work.

Following the strategies of leading publications like The New York Times, Newsroom 3.0 relies on artificial intelligence to offer a more attractive editorial product, enhance reader engagement and position features among the first search results.

What is the MDXP formula?

MDXP is Protecmedia's technology solution ecosystem for the media. As a whole, these solutions meet all needs: editing, advertising, audiences and archive.

AI's key differential values are: automation of work processes, elimination of repetitive tasks, increased reader engagement and consolidation of income sources.

Improved editorial processes

1. AIDA (“Artificial Intelligence Design Assistant”): Web-to-print artificial intelligence

AIDA technology automates the layout of print publications from the content published online. This design assistant enables DTPers to focus on creativity (avoiding time lost on repetitive tasks) and journalists to extend the closing time for the print edition.

2. A/B testing: shows the most effective headline and image

When you decide which content to include in your print edition and how to do it, you must have a CMS like Iter with A/B testing capabilities. A CMS that helps your newsroom team to determine which news items are working better and which headlines and images hook readers more and increase the number of views.

3. Customisation of user experience

All information gathered by the outlet about reader activity is used to create a customised user experience. Registered users can access a record of their favourite articles and articles saved to read later and track articles or news items by themes, trends or favourite authors.

Also, CMS Iter shows each user content that meets their particular interests, and suits their location or device they are using. This is a key strategy to increase reader loyalty.
